Heart Land Art Class

Faith Public Library

204 W 5th St, Faith, SD

October 22, 2018

5:30 - 9:00 p.m.

Something I often say is this:
"Most people call this the middle of nowhere,
but I call it the center of my life."


Heart Land art class is all about celebrating

living in a small town or out in the country,

gravel roads and long, lonely highways,

daily feeding chores and home cooked meals, muddy boots and worn gloves, sunflower fields and grazing pastures,

growing kids, livestock, and crops in the soil,

cutting hay, and having coffee with neighbors.

Heart Land honors small-town and rural America.

In the opening titles of the movie Pure Country,

George Strait and his son sing these words,


Sing a song about the heartland
The only place I feel at home
Sing about the way a good man
works until the daylight's gone
Sing the rain on the roof on a summer night
where they still know wrong from right
Sing a song about the heartland
Sing a song about my life
There's a place where the mornings are an endless blue
And you feel Mother Nature walk along with you
Where simple people living side by side
still wave to their neighbor when they're driving by...

 

The lyrics to this song

embody the spirit of my Heart Land Art Class.
